Founded in Faith-Building on Excellence Capital Campaign

Victor Serna
We continually strive for excellence at Seton Catholic Preparatory. The Founded in Faith – Building on Excellence campaign will honor former Seton Catholic students and families, excite current Sentinels, transform our campus and engage our civic community for generations to come. I invite you to join us in prayer and support to ensure the foundation of excellence, the pursuit of knowledge, and the love for others shines brightly in our Event Center and throughout the Seton Catholic community.

We are here to answer your questions.
 
A. We are currently in the quiet phase of the campaign, working behind the scenes on preparation, recruiting, training and campaign materials. The campaign will officially kick-off in late summer/early fall. Keep an eye out for more information and other campaign details over the next several months.
A. Our campaign offers a wide range of gift opportunities to participate at all levels.  Because our needs are urgent we encourage you to complete your pledge within three years, but accommodations can be made if needed.  Pledges payable over three years allow donors to consider more substantial commitments than are possible with one-time cash gifts.
A. A pledge to support the Founded in Faith - Building on Excellence Capital Campaign is not legally binding.  Our hope is that you make a commitment that you consider to be meaningful.  All pledges will be kept confidential with only the people responsible for maintaining campaign records having access to your pledge details.
A. Yes.  While our primary needs require immediate funding, if a donor offers a planned gift, we will accept all deferred gifts and apply them to the endowment-building portion of the campaign.  Gifts from donor-advised funds and private foundations are also welcome and will be applied to the capital projects.
A. As a qualified 501(c)3 non-profit organization, campaign gifts to Seton Catholic Preparatory are tax-deductible.  Donors with specific questions regarding tax deductibility should contact their professional tax advisors.
A. While cash gifts are deductible for those who qualify, some popular gift options for donors are: Gifts of highly appreciated securities (stock) may provide donors with additional tax savings by avoiding capital gains tax and qualifying for a charitable tax deduction.
 
An individual age 70 1/2 or older can transfer up to $100,000 from their IRA to the campaign and satisfy the required minimum annual distribution- without paying taxes on the withdrawal.
A. Providing that the campaign is as successful as we believe it will be, we plan to break ground in 2023 and have the construction of the Event Center and renovation of McMahon Gym completed within 18-24 months.  We are speeding up the process to be able to take advantage of cost savings by being able to purchase material to complete the construction and have the least amount of disruption to the school, as one project.
